Originally chartered in 1969 as the Philadelphia Alliance, the Alliance of Community Service Providers was formed to bring together agencies providing community mental health and mental retardation services to improve, participate in and help implement the planning and coordination of these services throughout the Philadelphia area; to strengthen the working relationships among member agencies and with the City of Philadelphia administration and other relevant governmental offices; to further the opportunity and ability of member agencies to contribute to the effective delivery of services to the City’s citizens affected by mental illness and intellectual disabilities. In 1989, the Philadelphia Alliance welcomed into its membership ranks organizations that are committed to assisting individuals with substance abuse needs.

The Alliance of Community Service Providers is committed to the delivery of the best possible care and supports for people served by our member agencies. The Alliance, through Domains, Committees, and teams of members, maintains communications with professionals, the City of Philadelphia and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania officials.
